Five days since my last klonopin (after 12 years)

Think I'm gonna make it! :)

I am surprised that stopping it altogether (from 1/8 of a mg, after a 3 month taper from 2 mg of course) has not been nearly as bad as some of the dosage decreases during the taper. I was expecting the end to be the worst part, but really the drop from 1/4 to 1/8 mg, and 1/8 mg to zero, were both much better than some of the earlier dosage drops.

1/8 mg was one-quarter of a 1/2 mg tablet, which you can practically do with your fingers, but I used a pill cutter to try to keep the dosages fairly even.

Melatonin is helping me to get a deeper sleep, I wake up feeling more refreshed, even though I still wake up sometimes. I think the booze is hurting my quality of sleep and I plan to cut back to one drink a day this week.
